How a 15-year-old female started developing Blockchain

  • Most fifteen-year-olds I talk to are busy:
    - keeping their streaks on snapchat,
    - or playing video games.
  • Most females I talk to in the space are either working on:
    - Blockchain strategies or marketing. Few that are on the technical side.

A Better Way of Managing Information

Transform business, government, and society

So far, most of the hype around blockchain has focused on their potential to change the financial services industry, but what really stuck with me was how it would be able to transform business, government, and society in even cooler ways.

Creating a better sharing economy

Most sharing economy companies aggregate the willingness of suppliers to sell their excess capacity (cars, equipment, etc.) through a centralized platform and then resell them to users.

Just about everything Uber does could be done by smart agents on a blockchain.

I read that over and over again until I understood it and I thought dang their right. When blockchain’s trust protocol allows for autonomous associations to be formed and controlled by people, do we even need Uber anymore?

Corporate Manufacturing & IP

A lot of manufacturers today still need centralized platforms to sell their creations and have trouble protecting the IP of their creations. With blockchain, data and rights holders could store metadata about any substance on the blockchain.

Changing the Music Industry

A really interesting application I had to share was actually within the Music Industry. I never thought something so interested could be done with Blockchain.

Reinventing Enterprise Collaboration

There are a ton of limitations within management tools inside many organizations because, with our current system, we still rely on a central intermediary to establish trust and coordinate.
